How the Next Generation of Board Members is Already Making an Impact

Episode Summary

As Next Gen Board Leaders strives to bridge the generation gap in today’s boardrooms, we find that the best ambassadors are the ones who lead by example. In this episode, we sit down with another impressive member of the Next Gen Board Leaders Advisory Council, Priya Cherian Huskins, who serves on the board of Realty Income Corp.

Joining the board in her mid-30s, Huskins has built an impressive board resume: she previously chaired the Nom/Gov Committee, now chairs the Compensation Committee, and is a member of her board’s Technology Risk Committee. In this episode of Inside America’s Boardrooms, Host TK Kerstetter touches on each area of her committee expertise. On the heels of the Next Gen Board Leaders Mini-Summit, he also asks Huskins about her experience meeting nine other Next Gen directors and how her generation will continue to make an impact in the months and years ahead.

  • Why did your board decide to form a Technology Risk Committee and what role does it serve?
  • What are the misconceptions surrounding younger directors? In what ways do you see the next generation of directors already contributing in the boardroom?
  • If you could send a message to the Trump team on behalf of all compensation committees, what suggestions would you make?
